Raphael Varane is in the Manchester United squad to face Chelsea after recovering from an injury that forced him off against Brentford on Saturday night.

The centre-back was part of the travelling party that headed to the capital on the train from Stockport on Thursday morning, with Jonny Evans also in the squad. That leaves Erik ten Hag with three centre-backs to pick from, with Victor Lindelof and Lisandro Martinez both out for a month with muscle injuries.

Mason Mount is also part of the squad as he prepares for his first return to Stamford Bridge, having scored his first goal for United in the 1-1 draw at Brentford on Saturday, while Amad returns having served a one-game suspension against Brentford following his sending-off after scoring against Liverpool in the FA Cup.

United have the chance to make up ground on Aston Villa and Tottenham in the race for Champions League football if they can beat Chelsea tonight. Villa lost at Manchester City on Wednesday and Spurs drew at West Ham on Tuesday night.

“I have high standards and I would be disappointed if we didn’t qualify,” said Ten Hag.

“I know it will be very difficult because we are not in a good position. But we want to win every game, that is the standard we have here among each other. We will keep going and keep believing in those standards. That will be the approach in every game. We will keep fighting until the end. I know we are not in a good position. We have to catch up.”

Mount will be keen to build on his cameo off the bench at the Gtech Community Stadium against his former club and Ten Hag has revealed how hard Chelsea fought to keep their academy graduate in the summer.

“I don’t think they wanted to sell him,” Ten Hag said. “They wanted to keep him and offered him a new contract many times. But he wanted to make this step.

“We are very pleased he is a Manchester United player because he has great abilities and will contribute and become a big player for Manchester United.”
